Supplier Profile

Crossbow Education Ltd

member since 2014

We are a family business, started in 1992 by Bob Hext, who was finding that the games he devised to teach his dyslexic students were more effective than many of the published materials available at the time.

Since we patented the Eye Level Reading Ruler in 2005 Crossbow has become the UK brand leader for visual stress products, with reading rulers and/or overlays in over 50% of the schools and colleges in the country. As well as our own publications we sell a wide selection of resources from other publishers, representing what we feel to be the best multisensory teaching resources suitable for dyslexia teaching support available in the UK.
